Holly Madison has big plans for after she gives birth. The former Playboy bunny said she wants to eat her placenta after her first child, due in March, is born.
“This might sound gross, but I’m totally planning on having my placenta turned into pills I can take after giving birth,” she wrote on her blog.
Madison explained she hopes the pills will help her recover after childbirth.
“I heard it helps women recover faster and I want to recover as quickly as I can!”
As strange as it sounds, Madison isn’t the first Hollywood mom to try this. In Sept. 2011, January Jones revealed she consumed her placenta in pills after she gave birth to her son.
“Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins,” Jones told People magazine. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas. It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Many other star moms have tried some pretty strange and gross rituals with their kids.
Last year, Alicia Silverstone posted a video of her pre-chewing and spitting food into her young son’s mouth.
And Christina Applegate had our jaws dropping when she shared her love for the product NoseFrida . Also known as the “snotsucker,” the device is placed in a child’s nostril, and then the parents use their mouths to suck out their kids' nose gunk.
The website for Nose Frida claims it is “100% hygienic due to the included filters.”
